VANCOUVER BIENNALE: OPEN AIR MUSEUM
Human Structures (64 Figures Connected), Jonathon Borofsky, USA
How do these brightly coloured figures reflect the cultural landscape of Vancouver?
In keeping with the 2014-2016 Vancouver Biennale exhibition theme “Open Borders/Crossroads Vancouver,” Borofsky’s work seeks to convey the feeling that everything is connected. Human Structures (64 Figures Connected), a site-specific installation for the Vancouver Biennale, illustrates this feeling of interconnectivity. The sculpture’s organic, modular structure suggests an ongoing process of building and learning, As Borofsky says, “we are all constantly in a process of connecting together to build our world -we are all learning to be free.
